Circuit Judge John Bowman serves the people of Broward County, Florida. A good deal of Judge John Bowman’s work deals with children and young people in the state. November 22, 2016, will mark his 14th year as chairman of the local National Adoption Day event, which he helped to create.

Each November, Broward County celebrates adoption and the wonderful parents who make it possible. On one special Saturday, dozens of families gather to make their adoptions official at the same time.

ChildNet, Florida’s dedicated service for children and families, has been holding the event for well over a decade. Although adoptions occur year-round, but the festive event draws a lot of attention and helps raise awareness for the kids who are still awaiting homes.

Today, there are 200 children awaiting loving homes in Broward and Palm Beach counties. If your family is considering adopting a new member, learn more about the process online at www.childnet.us/portal/adoption.
